Rules & Terms

Rotherham Hospice Lottery Terms & Conditions

All profits from Rotherham Hospice Lottery go directly towards our running costs. From March 2015 Rotherham hospice Lottery will be re-branded as Rotherham Hospice Second Chance Lottery.

  1. New members are sent a unique draw number for each entry purchased. One entry costs £2.00 per week.
  2. Payments made in advance at a minimum of £2.00 will be entered into the draw each week using the unique game number. The draw will take place every Friday including bank holidays. If there is no credit against the number it is not entered in to the draw, therefore a player will never be in arrears with their payments.
  3. Payments can be made by cash to a collector if available, by cheque made payable to  Rotherham Hospice Lottery or by standing order.

Standing orders may only be set up by completing the written mandates printed on our leaflets, promotional material or new member forms.
  4. All prizes in a draw are guaranteed to be won that week with the exception of the £500 roll over prize. This prize is allocated in a second draw which contains all numbers in credit that week as well as a series of random un-sold numbers. If an un-sold number is randomly selected by the computer the prize is not won and rolls over to the following week. If the prize has not been won when the fund reaches £10,000 all un-sold numbers are removed and the prize is guaranteed to be won in that week. We reserve the right to vary the percentage of un-sold numbers in the draw. 
  5. Prize winners will be notified by post within one week of the draw taking place which will include their winning cheque. Winning numbers will be printed at regular intervals in The Rotherham Record. A list will appear each week on our website or can be requested from the lottery office at the hospice.
